Phizzwhizzing new cover look and branding for the World's NUMBER ONE Storyteller!

WHOOSH! Inside the Great Glass Elevator, Willy Wonka, Charlie Bucket and his family are cruising a thousand feet above the chocolate factory.
They can see the whole world below them, but they're not alone. The American Space Hotel has just launched. Lurking inside are the Vernicious Knids - the most brutal, vindictive murderous beasts in the universe.
So grab your gizzard! Hold your hats! Only Charlie and Willy Wonka can stop the Knids from destroying everything!

Listen to CHARLIE AND THE GREAT GLASS ELEVATOR and other Roald Dahl audiobooks read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy soundeffects from Pinewood Studios!

Look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting TWIT OR MISS! and HOUSE OF TWITS inspired by the revolting Twits.

Fantastic story. The audio version has a special appeal due to the drama in the reader's voice and tone. This is a great book when you need a laugh at ridiculousness that sometimes is pretty close to real life (at least in August 2017). Read full review

This is quite a departure from the first book. Into the atmosphere! It reminded me of Douglas Adams. You can't beat the first book, however. This one doesn't have much to do with the Chocolate Factory ... Read full review
